Naming

Should the page say GNU ld, instead of simply "ld" since the linker script format is most likely GNU ld specific? - Sigjuice 21:17, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Not really, as ld de facto refers to the GNU linker (and afaik no other linker is called ld). I decided to put it in anyway because it can do no harm and the word ld alone is hardly noticeable as a hyperlink - Combuster 18:14, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

The name "ld" happens to be quite generic and predates the GNU movement (Part 2, page 20, Unix Programmer's Manual November 3, 1971). Also, most Unix-like systems have their own native linker, usually called ld. Here are four different versions of ld; AIX, Mac OS X, Solaris and HP-UX. - Sigjuice 08:59, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Take note that 2.9.1 predates 2.19 (or the currently up-to-date 2.21) by several years. The periods are significant in version numbering. -- Solar 12:08, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
